As you know, this site is usually about astrology or metaphysics. However, there's something so important that I must post it here. In the global outpouring to assist those who suffer in Kashmir and its neighbors, the recent Guatemalan mass disaster has almost been completely overlooked in the news. This post comes from a friend who is coordinating part of the disaster response to Guatemala. Please read what's going on, and give all you can to help our southern neighbors.
We’ve received news today from Mayan families with whom we work that the situation in the hurricane-stricken highlands of Guatemala is getting worse by the minute. Many communities now isolated because of washed out roads and bridges are running out of food and water supplies. The death count is estimated to reach 2000 and is likely to rise higher as the health conditions worsen. Although there are efforts to transport supplies to affected communities, the hurricane’s impact covered such a wide area and large number of rural communities, the need for relief is far greater than the supply. To make matters worse, the Katrina experience is repeating itself in highland Guatemala, as government agencies have been slow to provide much needed relief to victims.
Moonflower Enterprises is responding to this urgent need for relief assistance in Guatemala by releasing this alert and emergency request for donations to provide food, water and clothing for hurricane victims in the Sololá province of Guatemala. All donors will receive a tax-deductible receipt.
Please make your online donation at Moonflower Enterprises or make a check payable to Moonflower Enterprises (write "Hurricane Stan Emergency Fund" on memo-line) and mail to:
Moonflower Enterprises, P.O. Box 1161 Airway Heights, WA 99001. You can also call (877) 892-3193 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
On behalf of Mayan families who are in need, we thank you profoundly from our heart for your support.Here's a link to other relief orgs doing what needs to be done for Guatemala.
